Datamarine S-200DL Deph Sounder replacement

I'm replacing my Datamarine S-200DL depth sounder with a ST-60 Raymarine.
I will need to leave the existing transducer in until I haul out for maintenance in the Fall and fortunately I found a thread within Sailnet that had some really good info on resusing older transducers.

I hate to tear out my old instrument until I have all the proper wiring and connections; does anyone know what type of transducer cable does the Datamarine S-200DL used?

Thanks
Patrick

Are the dimensions of your replacement unit similar to the Datamarine unit which you are replacing? I have the same inoperative unit. Only the audible alarm works, no digital display.

I never did keep the Datamarine transducer; replaced them both. A S-200DL Datamarine depth finder had a 4" diameter opening but the ST-60 is a square but larger unit, and difference install. With care, install can be done without any patching.

Much better depth finder also the 5' shallow alarm does not go off while I'm in 40' of water. That usually gives you a immediate scare then your quickly realize you're in deep water and it's your faulty instrument.

I just looked at an old S-2oo DL and 4" sounds right. The ST-60 is square, but the hole is round, smaller than 4".
